March 12, 2020. Another winner from GD Vajra! Bought this to prepare my palate for my planned visit to Barolo next month. My palate is more than ready even though the trip fell victim to coronavirus. Now, sending best wishes to all of Italy. I will visit as soon as possible! This wine is a lovely expression of cherry and earth.

Purple! This wine is youthful and bright. Fruit is ripe and fresh, followed by leather and fresh potting soil. Integrated tannins, but still a long time until it’s “soft”. Perfect with a waygu filet.

Good acidity. Blueberries and Cherries have major play. Excellent finish.
